The Bakery and Bistro has been a favorite for more than 15 years, this quaint bistro offers not only French cuisine but also a chance to experience French techniques with a Mexican twist. One such concoction is a traditional Mexican sope topped with refried beans, mushrooms, béchamel sauce, and a touch of chile. Another is a dish called tiradito, which consists of a fusion of yellowtail tuna sashimi and ceviche. The rib eye of Sonoran beef is cooked to perfection, served with mashed potatoes and veggies in hibiscus sauce.
And for dessert? There is an entire case of pastries, including a variety of macaroons, napoleons, crème brûlée, and dessert crepes. On any given day, the pastry chef may surprise you with a chocolate tube filled with mouse made of traditional Mexican cocoa with raspberries and mint. Drop by at teatime and indulge in an ice cream cocktail. Ask for the chef’s dinner special, or a tasting menu can be enjoyed for approximately $30 U.S. per person, and includes appetizer, main course, dessert and a glass of wine. Catering offered, including delivery service, especially for weddings. Live music during Art Walk on Thursday nights.
